subway diaries, chapter 4

for all gothamites, the subway is a way of life. this is the fourth in a series of my thoughts on this modus transportare publico. i'm fluent in faux latin, be impressed.

nothing makes my day like a train conductor with a sense of humor.

"this is 34th street, penn station. transfer here for the C and E trains, Madison Square Garden, the Jacob Javits Center and the Copacabana."

what a way to make a captive but weary audience chuckle a bit first thing in the morning.

Truth is stranger than fiction. I was driving on the west side of Manhattan around 34th and saw a "new" club called the Copacabana ... not sure if its a dance club or a strip club. Looked a lil' cheesey.

Honestly, I don't remember ever riding the subway and thinking, "Wow, I can actualy make out what the conductor is saying."

Haha, you lie, Jasmine, it never happens. :)

Omar, it wasn't. It is now, dammit.

Stupid LRT system here has no conducter. It's all automated these days. Sigh.

I took a page out of your gratuitous book. Go see!
